Besides my go-to immune boosting tonic recipe with ginger garlic lemon and honey, I also like to make this orange carrot juice in the morning.

Juicing carrots and oranges makes a delicious breakfast alternative. Or you could enjoy your favorite breakfast – 30 minutes after, if you like something more substantial!

You can juice carrots by themselves or combine with fruit, either way they’re an excellent way to increase your beta-carotene intake, which is converted into vitamin A in the body.

Another great way to boost immune system is to combine carrot juice with vegetables like beetroot celery and ginger for multiple health benefits. Check out this beetroot juice blend recipe for exact proportions and tips.

Instructions For Juicer:

  1. Prepare the carrots and oranges: scrub/clean the carrots well. Leave them unpeeled if you’re using organic carrots – the skin contains concentrated vitamin C and niacin. You can peel them if you’re using conventional carrots – the concentration of pesticides is higher in the peel. Also peel the oranges and the ginger.
  2. Chop the ingredients to a size that fits your juicer and begin juicing according to the user’s manual.

Instructions For Blender:

  1. Prepare your carrots, oranges and ginger (wash and peel, cut into smaller chunks, about 1.5 inch);
  2. Mix: place in a blender and add water (pour gradually just enough to help blending) and blend on high for 30 seconds until smooth.
  3. Strain through a mesh bag / nut milk bag and squeeze as much juice with your hands in a clean container. Don’t use a regular metal strainer you’re going to waste a lot of juice. Discard the pulp, or use it in baking goods. Serve the fresh juice right away!
  4. Alternatively you could leave it as it is, and enjoy it as smoothie (if you don’t mind the abundance of fiber).

How To Enhance The Vitamin Absorption Of This Juice

Since carotenoids are sensitive to temperatures and are prone to degradation, thermal treatment (such as use of a centrifugal juicer) often results in substantial loss of carotenoids. For best results use a cold press masticating juicer.

Moreover you can increase the vitamin absorption by drinking this orange carrot ginger juice with a little fat (vitamin A and C are fat soluble). Fats you can consume with (or after) are: oils, avocado, egg, nuts (butter or milk), fish oil capsules etc.

The Taste of Carrot Orange and Ginger Juice and Concentration

The flavor of the juice made in a blender is a bit diluted, because of added water, therefore is a bit less sweet/intense but still tasty.

The carrot orange and ginger juice made with a juicer is much more concentrated (as you will need more carrots and oranges to make the same amount of juice) it has more nutrients and a more intense flavor. The ginger adds quite a kick.

Which is better?

It all depends on your preferences. If you mind the extra time needed to strain the pulp, go with juicing. If you want to save on time and clean-up, go with blending and adding water until desired consistency is reached.

How To Store Carrot Orange and Ginger Juice For Later Use

If you want to make this carrot orange ginger juice ahead of time, you can store it in a glass airtight bottle in the fridge for up to two days. But, it’s best enjoyed right away, because vitamin ascorbic acid tends to degrade quickly.

Store Bought Juice Vs Freshly Squeezed

Keep in mind that there is some vitamin loss due to pasteurization and storage of store-bough juices. For example a store-bought orange juice has 15% less vitamin C and 27% less folate than fresh squeezed juice.
